btw, mpeg2 std:
           There shall be no skipped macroblocks in I-pictures except when
           either       picture_spatial_scalable_extension()  follows   the
           picture_header() of the current picture.
           or    sequence_scalable_extension() is present in the  bitstream
           and scalable_mode = "SNR scalability".

hmm, i only see the trashed b frames ...
-if(s2->last_picture_ptr==NULL && s2->pict_type==B_TYPE) break;
+if(s2->pict_type==B_TYPE) break;
this will skip all b frames

no, but it should, ill fix that, should be quite easy

level[i]= get_vlc(); i+=get_vlc();		(violates patent EP0266049)
median(mv[y-1][x], mv[y][x-1], mv[y+1][x+1]);	(violates patent #5,905,535)
buf[i]= qp - buf[i-1];				(violates patent #?)
